The proposed route lends itself very much in the winter to snowshoe hiking.
Warning: with special hard snow conditions may be necessary crampons.
It starts from the square below the station of the chairlift (1376) and follow faithfully the stock ex-military Monesi-Colle di Tenda rising first switchback below the chairlift and then turns sharply to the west toward the valley of the Rio Bavera. After crossing the border between the provinces of Imperia and Cuneo (1650 road sign), it crosses the ski lift Plateau just above his departure and cross the end wall of the ski slope.
Shortly after you get onto a second track, less steep than the previous one, and follow it to the right, leaving the road to the Passo Tanarello. This track is reunited with her previous output by larches, with the big statue of the Redeemer now in plain sight. With strenuous climb you reach the Redeemer (2164), and in short, to crest the summit of Saccarello (2200).
On your return you may want to do a loop through the beautiful Refuge Sanremo (2078). To get there you walk always on the north side of the ridge just below the ridge, taking care to frames and above the holes in the snow that sometimes are created in correspondence with rocks or shrubs buried.
From the hut we descend towards the east along a clear canyon (very popular with off-piste skiers) that flows into the great valley dominated by Frontè. Before you reach the bottom of the valley, turn left and you will soon reach halfway up the Margheria Panizzi. From here, along the ski slopes, you will then return to the parking lot of the chairlift.
